Events and Fundraisers
The Giving Evergreen
 
The "Giving Evergreens" is a sculpture, created by Sanford Werfel, of three evergreen trees with pine needle clusters finished in gold, silver, and copper and hand carved stones.

Adding a pine needle cluster, stone, or tree is a lasting and exceptional way to celebrate, honor, or remember someone who has touched your life!

Display Case
Bell Collection by Jean Paris
 
Jean Paris of Dallas will be displaying her collection throughout the month of December.
 
Paris has been collecting bells for 25 years and has items in her collection from around the world. Some of her favorite pieces include bells from Holland and a cow bell from Germany. Paris explained, “When they bring the cows down from the high meadows, they are decorated and paraded through the village.”
Paris said, “I have travelled to over 67 countries.” Each bell from a foreign country represents the local craftsmanship of that country or was bought as a souvenir at a tourist shop. “Some are made by the people of that country, telling a story about their country or people, who are artists.”
